Allon Mitchell Lacco Repeat Sex Offender

A NINE-year-old Belmont boy says he was lured into the home of convicted sex offender Allon Mitchell Lacco while a pornographic movie played with the promise of free DVDs and CDs.

The boy also claimed the convicted West Australian sex offender, 42, gave him and a group of friends at the nearby Waurn Ponds skate park lollies and soft drinks just weeks before.

The youngster’s fearful parents immediately called Geelong police to report the incidents.

“I was with my two friends and when I went into the house I saw the porno on and told them to stay outside,” he said.

“I didn’t even want to go inside but I wanted the movies.”

The boy’s father said he was alerted to Lacco’s presence in the neighbourhood _ about 500m from their home _ by the Geelong Advertiser.

He then discovered internet-based sex offender registry Mako had dropped fliers in Ursa St and nearby roads, alerting residents to its website which names and shames convicted sex offenders.

“I was devastated,” he said.

“You try to give your kids a little bit of freedom but from now on we’ll be keeping a much closer eye on them.”

Lacco was released from a West Australian prison last year after the rape of a 29-year-old woman and attack of an 11-year-old girl while on bail for the rape.
